Taming New York
Start 18:30, End 20:00
New York and London have many similarities: global presence, population size, demographic and economic profile, but also severe housing shortage and growing inequality. But they have radically different systems of government. NYC’s Planning Department has the tricky task of balancing housing provision and job creation, through – amongst other tools – the complex process of ‘zoning’. It also has to manage the classic top-down bottom-up dynamics that shape and re-shape the urban and social landscapes of these global cities.
Marisa Lago, Chair of the New York City Planning Commission, will reflect on the challenges of delivering change in under Mayor Bill de Blaiso’s administration.
This event is free and open to all, and no registration is required. Entry is on a first-come, first-served basis.
